The children of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme reportedly requested a restraining order against him, which was denied by two judges.

Homme’s two sons filed for domestic violence legal protection through their mother, Brody Dalle, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The documents contain claims that the musician was physically abusive towards his children, who are aged five and 10 years old.

Among the allegations in the filling are the claims that Homme recently grabbed the genitals of Orrin, 10, and in the past has struck his head, thrown objects at him, verbally taunted him, driven while drunk with both children in the car, and threatened to murder Dalle’s current partner.

Speaking to TMZ, Homme’s attorney Susan Wiesner said: “Ms Dalle has previously brought these claims to the police, DCFS and the presiding judge of the family law court, all of whom have declined to take any action based upon these spurious claims.”

In a later statement, Wiesner said: “The allegations made by Ms Dalle against Mr Homme are categorically false. In order to protect the children, we will not be making any further statements.”

Per TMZ’s reporting, Dalle attempted to file the restraining order on behalf of the children in a court in downtown LA, before submitting it to a Santa Monica court. The request was denied both times.

Following their divorce in 2019, Dalle, who is the lead singer of The Distillers, took out a restraining order against Homme, alleging that Homme head-butted her.

Homme subsequently took out a protection order against Dalle, claiming that she showed up at events he was attending to attempt to trigger a violation of the restraining order.
